The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands – An Artful Expression of Design Mastery

The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands, epitomises luxury and design perfection in the centre of the stunning Fari Islands archipelago. The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, recently awarded the “Best Design Hotel” at TTM Maldives 2023, charms visitors with its exceptional allure, seamlessly blending seclusion and elegance amidst its stunning surroundings.

The Ritz-Carlton Maldives is the second jewel to grace the Fari Islands. It is an artificial marvel located just a 45-minute boat journey from Velana International Airport. The Ritz-Carlton Maldives emanates an appealing ambience, welcoming a varied assortment of guests—from passionate couples and honeymooners to multi-generational families—following in the footsteps of its predecessor, Patina Maldives, and anticipating the forthcoming Capella Maldives.


The Ritz-Carlton Maldives’ award-winning design is credited to Kerry Hill Architects, who have effortlessly merged the resort with its natural surroundings while incorporating forward-thinking components that redefine the Maldivian resort scene.

The master plan of the resort, which spans a two-kilometre-long island chain along a single thread of circulation, welcomes guests on a trip from the immersing seascape to the revitalising forest ‘breather spaces.’ The resort’s simple geometric island formations, a pragmatic reaction to oceanographic conditions, demonstrate Kerry Hill Architects’ architectural expertise. The interconnecting homes that float over the blue lagoon represent the cyclical flow of island life, resulting in a visually striking and peaceful atmosphere.

The Ritz-Carlton Maldives not only captivates with its aesthetic appeal but also integrates sophisticated technical requirements while maintaining a sense of simplicity. The resort’s dedication to sustainability is evident in its comprehensive strategy, which ensures a minimal carbon impact throughout its working life while blending in with its natural surroundings/
